The slow!

Monday, April 01, 2013

I know many of us have done this, and I am trying to nip it in the bud. I have been diligent about tracking all food, exercise, etc. since the beginning of 2013. Over the last month I have started to see a trend.

My total daily calories are creeping up and up. Just a little bit one day, a little bit the next. I go over my max one day and say it is OK, there is always tomorrow - but that is happening more and more. Too many days over the maximum.

Am I making excuses? Maybe. Am I making unhealthy choices? Definitely. I am trying to remember the phrases that I would repeat to myself over and over to keep myself in check. Things like "It is a choice, make the right one!" or "This isn't the last piece of cake you will ever see in your life, don't eat it!"

The prevalence of Cadbury Eggs and Jelly Beans don't help.

I would love to know what other people repeat to themselves to help keep the motivation to stay on track.

    I try to go through asking myself am I:



If the answer isn't hunger--and I mean true belly hunger, then the answer for me is not food.

The other thing I use is that I picked the most disgusting food (but healthy sort of) that I could think of. For me, it's canned carrots. I actually bought a can of carrots and if I find myself loitering in the kitchen I pull out that can of carrots. If I'm truly hungry I would eat that. It's a little mental battle that I do.

Hope one of these helps!

    Today is a new day - one of my own design. I can do whatever I choose, and I need to remember it's always MY choice in each moment. I'll do my best today, and that's all I can do. It may not be perfect, but neither am I.
